ABOUT YOUR TRAINER
NCCPT, NASM, AFAA, CES, Fitness Nutrition Specialist, International Youth Conditioning Association, Healthy Moms Pre/Post Natal
My name is Barbie Markey and I am a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. I have an incredible passion for fitness and motivating others to be their best self. Growing up, I played sports and fell in love with dance. After college, I worked a desk job with long hours so I set a goal to get me back on track dancing and loving fitness again and I achieved both.
I auditioned and worked with the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders for two seasons. What an incredible experience! I've always loved football and grew up as a Redskins fan, so every day was a dream just setting foot in the stadium. I am so thankful for the time I got to spend there. Training for peak performance as a member of the team, really piqued my interest in strength training and nutrition so I became certified to teach group exercise classes and personal train.
Since then, I've pursued multiple certifications to strengthen my understanding of fitness, functional movement, and multiple group exercise platforms. I love helping others become confident, and strong through fitness and am so grateful to be able to do what I love! If you're ready to be fit, strong and confident, contact me today!
